    Caste buster alert: Auburn WR Will Hastings led the team in receiving with 4 receptions for 68 yards and a TD! QB Jarrett Stidham had a mediocre game passing for 14/24 for 185 yards with 2 TD's and a Int, however he did Rush for an additional 17 yards and a TD!

    And to imagine he was brought to Auburn to kick field goals (or something like that), utilizing his 4.4/40 speed ;)

    One more thing about Jackson Anthrop.......I read he had a school record 55 touchdowns his senior season and rushed for 2200 yards at 9 per carry.......Couldn't be a running back at division one level, of course........

    Anthrop looking awesome...Purdue looks very white friendly offense. No write up done for them this year but looks like white QB, snow plow, two white TEs, white WR

    For anyone still up, WSU-Montana State game is pretty white friendly. Falk playing well for WSU. Montana State sometimes has 10 white players (black QB shockingly) on offense.

    Looking at their depth chart they have a white SAM and SS. 10 white starters total.

    Patrick Laird the junior RB for Cal had a decent 56 yard reception for a TD. He only had 3 rushes for 9 yards though.

    Zaire told Josh Allen that he had 35 offers lol
    B Harris is awful too, and still get chances...

    Texas D was garbage last year, they benched their best LB Hager this weekend, and the D looks even worse now...

    The top teams with quotabacks all recieved mediocre play from their beloved signal callers (outside of Lamar Jackson). I didn't know RuPaul was the QB for Free Shoes.

    Alabama will have to face Shea Patterson, Etling, Fitzgeral and Stidham this season.

    Very true. Mostly mediocre performances outside of Jackson, but I noticed the BSPN college football twitter feed is still trying to push them as much as possible and totally ignore outstanding White QB play (of which there was a lot).

    I noticed a couple of snarky comments by a particular BSPN college football cucktard "analyst" on his twitter feed yesterday regarding Josh Allen (instead of giving credit to Iowa's White-friendly defense (of course)).

    I watched some of the Oregon game before it got way out of hand. I did not see Schooler on the field at all while I watched. It looks like he had 2 catches. I hope he ends up transferring and going back to DB.

    To me the semi opening week (there were a few games last week) didn't have me jumping up and down. I kept a close eye on potential first round draft picks DE Sam Hubbard (Ohio State), DE/LB Porter Gustin (USC), and QB Josh Allen(Wyoming). I feel they have spectacular talent. Hubbard is such a pure fluid athlete I can envision him playing and starring in the NFL for 12 years. Gustin was awesome yesterday and nearly intercepted a pass. He is extremely active, athletic and versatile. I guess the company line is Allen hurt is NFL stock with a sub par performance against a terrific Iowa D led by outlaw Josey J. It is extremely difficult to project QB's but he has in my mind more raw talent than any QB I have seen in quite a while and that would include Andrew Luck. Lets face a few facts. He had a stud receiver last year in Gentry but this year the cupboard looks bare and he plays for Wyoming so one has to factor that in. But by God if he can get a few things straightened out we are looking at a QB with as much raw talent as Aaron Rogers.

    Iowa killed the Cowboys run game making them one dimensional. Allen lost not only Gentry but also Hollister and Jake Maulhardt as well as RB Brian Hill. I like Allen a lot but with all the losses the Cowboys had on offense he will need to pick up the slack which there is a lot of.

    Mason Rudolph is my fav senior qb and is still being overlooked.

    Rudolph is in a good spot to lead OK State to the top of the Big 12 and national attention if their notoriously bad defense steps up. I have a feeling he'll be a household name by seasons end!

    WVU QB Grier and his OL looking good. Grier to White WR David Sills for the TD. WVU up 7-3 over VT now.

    Interesting story on WR David Sills having a great game so far; including nice TD catch! Was recruited in 7th Grader as a QB by Lane Kiffin at USC....dude is a athlete

    Turns out never mentioned BYU wr Beau Tanner is the fastest player on the team. LSU pretty much shut him down but Mangum looked pretty bad.
    Also Utah State's Dallin Leavitt had 2 breakups against Wisconsin and due to an injury, safety turned corner played most of the game, Gage Ferguson did not log any stats but Wisconsin never threw at him. Kansas State corner/nb apparently did start and recorded 5 tackles. Nice.

    The Comrades announcing the game doing their best to denigrate Grier (who hasn't played in two years?) and hyping the VT quotaback.

    Will Grier tonight so far: 22/35 223 2 TD 1 INT plus 7 rushes for 24 yards.

    EDIT: Grier just now completed a 43 yard pass, so that can be added to the stats above
